Our model was different from last week and was shorter than I was(and I'm almost 100% sure she modeled for us at FIEA a few times) and she had a bubbly butt. Bubblebutts are fun as heck to draw, especially how they connect to the lower back and hips. Lots of fun muscle-fat connections flowing into eachother.
I hate taking pictures of these drawings 'cause a lot of my pretty line quality gets lost in digital form. Will try to show close up details.
I liked the stance on the left better(especially her back leg heading back into perspective) but her head is waaay too big; teacher loved the one on the right; movement through the figure is better and proportions are much better overall, but the figure isn't weighted to the ground. Her left(front) foot should be holding more of the figures weight.
We did a quick contour exercise(usually you are suppose to do it for 30-45 mins) but basically you stand parallel with your drawing arm's shoulder flush with the edge of your canvas so you can't see what you are drawing. You keep your eyes totally focused on the figure and you never pick up your charcoal from the paper. The figure becomes one long continuous line. It's a great exercise for hand-eye coordination and teaching you to slow down and really see the figure, bumps, warts and all. If you don't really know what contouring is an an exercise the drawings can look fairly hilarious.
